K9 Fitness Center

The American K9 Country “K9 Fitness Center” is a NEW state of the art facility that includes an AquaPaws Water Treadmill, K9 Land Treadmill & “FitPaws” K9 Fitness equipment. This facility has everything you need to keep your K9 athlete in tip-top condition.

AquaPaws Water Treadmill
American K9 Country now offers K9 fitness sessions in our NEW Hudson Aquatic’s AquaPaws water treadmill. AquaPaws K9 Water Treadmills were designed to improve the lives of k9’s by offering low-impact, high-resistance therapy & workouts for rehabilitation from injury, fitness conditioning, and weight loss. The AquaPaws treadmill is more beneficial than the conventional land-treadmills due to the natural buoyancy, resistance and hydrostatic pressure of water that gives a more rigorous cardiovascular workout with reduced impact and stress on joints.

K9 Fit FUR Paws Land Treadmill

Our land treadmill offers a great way to give your pooch an excellent cardiovascular & calorie burning workout.

K9 FitPaws Fitness Balls & Equipment

Much like human fitness, our K9 athletes benefit greatly from core strength & balance. AK9C has all the necessary thera-ball equipment necessary to make your pooch a fit, balancing K9 guru! For more information regarding “ball-work” & its amazing uses check out the DVD by Debbie Gross of Wizard of Paws “Get on the Ball” & “Get on the Ball TWO”.
